Congressman David B. McKinley, P.E. (WV-01), issued the following statement responding to the decision by the U.S. Supreme Court in the case of "Dobbs vs. Jackson Women's Health Organization" that overturns Roe v. Wade.

"For nearly 50 years, the Supreme Court's ruling of Roe v. Wade has threatened the lives of millions of innocent unborn children. Today, the Court has taken a historic step to correct this decades-old error. I applaud this decision that will save countless innocent lives," said Rep. McKinley.

"This decision returns the power to the states to protect the unborn. We must continue to fight the extreme abortion-on-demand, at-any-time agenda and be a voice for the lives of unborn children."

Congressman McKinley spoke on the House floor on December 1, 2021, on the day the Supreme Court heard arguments in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization case.
